  1. 1. Future Forward! - BPM Futuristic Trends Future Forward! - BPM Futuristic TrendsHow can Business Process Management optimize business outcomes and performance? Last year’sleading BPM events and the views aired therein by the industry’s thought leaders all bring out adominant and somewhat worrying scenario – after a decade, Process Agility is still a pipe dream fororganizations struggling to connect BPM technologies with their real world business processes.Companies continue to focus on process automation as the quick fix to achieving Business ProcessManagement goals without clearly defining end performance parameters and process improvementmetrics. There is a need then to step back from the blinding array of available BPMS and concentrate onbuilding operational resilience achieved through continuously introducing new process incidents for goalfulfilment and performance measurement. The need is also to identify a set of techniques that allowpeople, processes and information systems to adapt to changing patterns repeatedly.The success words for the future of BPM include Activity Monitoring and Business Intelligence – agreater shift towards “predictive” instead of the “reactive” models being followed; Business ActivityMonitoring (BAM) and Business Event Support as an important aspect of any full service BPM platformwhilst evaluating best fit BPMS by organizations. BPM platforms with a strong focus on BAM, will comeout on top by providing the critical visibility today’s embattled organizations need to establish relevantbusiness goals and accountability.The road this year will organically lead to social BPM - an ideal scenario where knowledge workers andpartners model collaborative processes and BPMS designs address needs of unstructured process suchas those that rest with knowledge workers. . As organizations begin to see the light about creatingstructures that are operationally resilient, BPMS as a technology takes a back seat. Key features of BPMSthat support real world company goals for operational intelligence such as BAM and Process Designersfor continuous process improvement take to the forefront of BPM as a solution to achieve operationalsuccess.Business transformation has emerged as the key to sustaining organizational success and there isnegligible concern on technology issues. Processes as a platform must necessarily come to pass as moreand more users are vested in the belief that processes will eventually run in the cloud (both public andprivate).The economic downturn has everyone looking inward and setting the house in order. Going forward,structured process automation will slowly give way to process management for unstructured processes– harnessing knowledge repositories within enterprises.The emerging face of BPM extends accountability to process management as the means to optimizebusiness outcome. This means that BPMS needs to keep pace as organizations start adapting process atthe pace of business changes and not at the pace of their BPM package!1
